Trail shared by Kyle Coleman

A multi-use path through Harrisonburg's Purcell Park and parts of James Madison University's campus.

Features -none-

Bathroom facilities and water fountains are turned off in the wintertime.

Description

This multi-use path is great for a casual afternoon run with your friends and family. A car-free path, with only one major intersection to cross, it's short but a good start. There are plans to lengthen the trail in the future.

The portion that crosses Purcell Park is excellent. There are multiple bridge crossings, a pond, and a playground where you can stop and add to your fun.

The JMU portion circles their campus lake with a large water fountain.
